I have not decorated a cake in three years. While living in CA, I did not have make cake decorating arsenal and I did not want to re-buy the equipment I already had in triplicate at home. I have to admit however, because I could not decorate in CA, it allowed me true time to grow and elevate my baking.
But a last, I am back at home and decorating cake! This is the first cake I have decorating in nearly three years. I made a cake to celebrate a little girl’s 8th Birthday. It is not a masterpiece by any means. Yet, I am proud of it and happy to be getting back in the saddle. I am excited about what the future holds when I have 1) more time to decorate, 2) more time to practice different techniques, and 3) more training!
